Dear Schodack Families,

It is so great to see our students back, all together, this year. We would also like to welcome several new families to the district. We are happy to have you as a part of our Schodack family and community and we look forward to getting to know all of you.

Schodack Central School District is very fortunate to live in such a generous community that truly cares about our school and its students. As a result of the generosity we receive every year, our school is able to support families in need. We wanted to make you aware of a couple of programs that we offer. Please know that these programs are CONFIDENTIAL.

  • Food Backpack Program Our school has been selected as a site for the BackPack child nutrition program by the Regional Food Bank. This allows any student and their families with food insecurities to take a backpack full of food home with them on the weekends and breaks. Backpacks are already being sent home with students and will continue through late Spring.
  • Holiday Giving Program – The holidays can put a strain, financially, on families. This program allows families to supplement their gift-giving to their children. Wish lists are made (typically 2-3 items) and faculty/staff/community members donate these wish list items. You also have an opportunity to request a free turkey for Thanksgiving. This program will begin in mid-November.

If you are interested in having your child(ren) participate in one or both of these programs, please reach out to our School Social Workers. Their names and contact information are listed below. We look forward to working with you.
